The Seattle Seahawks are heading into their preseason game with a number of frustrating injuries on both sides of the ball. Fortunately, there's plenty of runway left in the preseason, and none of these players are necessarily worries for the long-term.

Still, for a team hoping to see their roster come together early with high hopes ahead in 2023, it's tough seeing some promising young players out early in training camp.

Darrell Taylor

Darrell Taylor's sack numbers will tell an outsider one story about the Seattle Seahawks pass rush, but there's a good reason why the team has invested picks in subsequent drafts at the same position in order to stock it more fully—picks like Boye Mafe from a year ago and Derick Hall in this year's draft.

Taylor came into the league as a situational pass rusher with the potential to develop into something more but that "more" has never quite developed. Since then, the Seahawks have continued to gather bodies at the position, and while Taylor remains an important rotational piece, he's also been passed over on the depth chart too often for a player with 9.5 sacks a year ago.

These days, Taylor is dealing with a shoulder sprain which is doing him no favors in being able to stave off further competition heading into another year in the league. The Seahawks say he's making progress, but coming into the preseason injured isn't helping him make any sort of leap back up the ladder for 2023.
